A Man for All Seasons

Highly recommended 1966 masterpiece for Scofield's brilliant portrayal of Sir Thomas More. Excellent music by Georges Dolorue and capable support by Robert Shaw as Henry VIII and Leo McKern as Thomas Cromwell. Zinnemann's masterpiece covers how More stood up to the monarchy and against it during the marriage of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn.. alienation with the Roman Church and the pursuit of false loyalty..the film also drives home the importance of what an oath means to a believer.
